Rationale: During exercise protein breakdown in muscles is larger than protein synthesis. This negative muscle protein balance leads to increased muscle damage and thereby to a reduced muscle tissue recovery. To achieve a positive muscle protein balance and reduce muscle damage, many athletes use proteins. In professional soccer players, considerable stress is placed on the musculoskeletal system. Recovery time is often too short for these players to restore homeostasis, which results in catabolic processes. This increases playing errors and will lead to lapses in concentration. Therefore, it is of great importance for a professional soccer team to be in optimal condition and a fast recovery after exercise is desirable to accomplish maximum performance. Supplementation with whey proteins is thought to support this.
Objective: To assess whether post-exercise supplementation with whey protein will lead to a better muscle recovery than supplementation with carbohydrates in Dutch soccer players between the age of 15 and 18 years old.
Study design: A double blind randomised controlled cross-over trial.
Study population: Healthy soccer players of the A and B selection of AJAX between the age of 15 and 18 years old.
Intervention: Supplement, containing either whey proteins or an isocaloric carbohydrate placebo. Each supplement will be administered for 2 weeks separated by a 7 day washout period. Treatment order will be randomly assigned.
Main study parameters: The main study parameter will be the Yo-Yo intermittent recovery test level 2 score and the vertical jump test. The scores will evaluate the soccer players' ability to repeatedly perform intense exercise and his potential to recover from this exercise.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

The purpose of this study is to determine if supplementation with NUTRALYS pea protein isolate compared to whey protein and apple juice (carbohydrate, non-protein control) before, during, ...
Using stable isotope methodology, investigators will determine the postabsorptive and postprandial muscle protein synthetic response in 60 female adults (Age 50-64, BMI:
Sarcopenia, a progressive loss of muscle mass, strength and function, is an inevitable natural process of aging. While it may be impossible to completely reverse the progress of sarcopenia...
This study compares three different protein supplements (casein, whey and leucine-enriched whey) and their effect on post-inflammatory muscle waste in a model of acute disease. Each test p...
When we age, we lose muscle. It is not exactly clear why this happens, but we do know that this muscle loss can increase health risks and lead to health problems. Lifting weights (i.e. per...
Muscle atrophy has been explained by an anabolic resistance following food intake and an increase of dietary protein intake is recommended. To be optimal, a dietary protein has to be effective not onl...
Severe protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) and skeletal muscle wasting are commonly observed in patients with acute leukemia. Recently, the ingestion of a soy-whey protein blend has been shown to promot...
Athletes as well as elderly or hospitalized patients use dietary protein supplementation to maintain or grow skeletal muscle. It is recognized that high quality protein is needed for muscle accretion,...
Whey protein products are of widespread use as food ingredients because of their high nutritional, biological and functional properties. Whey proteins are important structural components in many foods...
Rennet gelation is used to produce many types of cheese. The effect of native whey protein on rennet gelation kinetics was investigated. Milks with a wide range of whey protein:casein (WP:CN) ratios (...
The protein components of milk obtained from the whey.
A major protein fraction of milk obtained from the WHEY.
A plasma protein that circulates in increased amounts during inflammation and after tissue damage.
The major protein constituents of milk are CASEINS and whey proteins such as LACTALBUMIN and LACTOGLOBULINS. IMMUNOGLOBULINS occur in high concentrations in COLOSTRUM and in relatively lower concentrations in milk. (Singleton and Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed, p554)
A cyclic GMP-dependent protein kinase subtype that is expressed in SMOOTH MUSCLE tissues and plays a role in regulation of smooth muscle contraction. Two isoforms, PKGIalpha and PKGIbeta, of the type I protein kinase exist due to alternative splicing of its mRNA.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
